This might not go down well with some fans. A new report suggests that the Xbox One X touted as being the ‘most powerful console’ ever made, doesn’t support virtual reality.
During an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Xbox’s marketing boss Mike Nichols revealed the reasons behind the lack of VR support for the console:
The opportunity on PC is larger, because the install base is larger and we think the customer experience will be better on PC
This still comes as a surprise since Xbox One X’s biggest rival the PS4 Pro comes with VR support and has a dedicated VR peripheral in the form of the PlayStation VR headset.
Sony showed off a decent line-up of upcoming VR games for the PS4 Pro while the Xbox One X didn’t have any, and now that it’s confirmed not to be supporting VR, the PS4 Pro definitely seems to have an edge for the consumers who’re looking for a console that enables VR experiences.
In another setback, it was also confirmed that Destiny 2, Bungie’s upcoming online shooter, will be running at 30FPS on the Xbox One X, much to the dismay of fans who were expecting it to support 60FPS for the game.
